Your peers and bosses perceive you as crass, impulsive and unreliable. Yet you think of yourself as blunt, intuitive and flexible.

Who’s right? They are—at least when it comes to your image. Reputations result from others’ perception of you. If they see you in a bad light, you must change their perception or descend into career purgatory.

Ask trusted colleagues to characterize your reputation. Ask, “How would others describe me?” and “What are seen as my biggest positives and negatives?” Use the answers as a blueprint to capitalize on your strengths and fix your weaknesses.
